When our cakes came out of the oven they looked beautiful and we felt very proud ……. “This is how Mr Kipling and Aunt Bessie must feel every day.” mused Darrell
However, when we tried to get the cake out of the tins we suddenly remembered that we hadn’t greased them, we just assumed, that as they were black in colour, the tins were non stick, we were very sadly wrong.
Undeterred, Darrell thought that we might be able to salvage things by holding the cake together with some jam and then no one would be any the wiser, but as he started spreading, it only crumbled more.
They make it look so easy on the tele…… but obviously there is more to baking than meets the eye.
Needless to say we didn’t attempt any icing or fancy stuff.
But in our defence the cake was lovely, light and spongy and very nice with a bit of custard for pudding. But we have deferred our application for Come Dine With Me for a little while, as we don’t think we are quite ready just yet!
